On the market research side, Gary Stein quit as senior analyst at JupiterResearch to join BuzzMetrics, a word-of-mouth research firm in New York. An interactive marketing expert, Stein is part of BuzzMetricsâ€™ client services department based out of San Francisco.
Steinâ€™s move comes soon after Forrester Research, Cambridge, MA, lost principal analyst Jim Nail to media measurement and business software firm Cymfony Inc., Watertown, MA. Nail is now chief strategy and marketing officer at Cymfony.
Seems like the big-dogs are stocking-up on talent and, with Gary Stein, they get a nice bloke too! Congrats Gary!
